Allow me to continue with the negativity...I defn prefer a Pig Era version, BUT skip both. For reasons nicely outlined above.

Also forgot to add:

Bob's version of Good Loving always conjured visions of Wayne Newton without the saliva problem. Bob needed to leave the Holiday Inn's Velvet Lounge version at home.

LOL, I was thinking that, too! While reading these various Pig/GL/Lovelight threads, I thought back to "back in the day" and how that side was the one I didn't really get into on Live Dead.

I've actually come to appreciate Pig more since finding the archives and having free-n-easy access to a wealth of early-era stuff. But I think Pig and what he did benefits a LOT from the whole context of the show, including song placement. Live Dead, as sacred as it may be to DHs, didn't actually provide that the way all the recordings we have access to now do. Not even close.

Really, I heard very little Pig until finding the archives.
I used to have a certain amount of tapes years ago (though wasn't a serious collector), but they'd tend to be heavy on my own "era" and the years just prior -- so, no Pig on those tapes. Loved the early-era albums, but (other than Live Dead) there was nothing Piggish that stood out to me.

The Live Dead Lovelight ... well, it's kinda like, "Would you skip through the archives just specifically looking for Lovelights? Would you sample a show and just sample two or three tunes including the Lovelight?" Well, no. While I can get into Lovelight in the right circumstances, I'm not going to LOOK for it. That side of Live Dead was basically, "OK, now I'm just gonna do Lovelight." So, nah. I'd pass. It was pretty much an untouched side!!!

i recently came to the conclusion that i just straight up don't care about the song "good lovin" and skip every version no matter who is singing but i find weir bringing back pigpen songs to be quite cheesy.
